Fifth Movement "The Call"

1.        Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life:

such a way as gives us breath,

such a truth as ends all strife,

such a life as killeth death.

2.        Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength:

such a light as shows a feast,

such a feast as mends in length,

such a strength as makes his guest.

3.        Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart:

such a joy as none can move,

such a love as none can part,

such a heart as joys in love.

George Herbert, 1633, “The Call” from “The Temple”, The Hymnal No. 487
